Drunk in Love Bachelorette Party Ideas with Cricut

Bachelorette Parties are such fun parties for all the ladies in your wedding, but don't you agree that there need to be some new, fresh themes for these milestone celebrations? 
When you search for bachelorette party themes in store or online, you find the same old tired themes and color schemes. 
So, my solution to that is to create your own theme with your Cricut!!

I wanted a fun, contemporary theme for my bride, so I chose a "Drunk in Love" theme. Plus, what bride doesn't like Beyonce? Am I right?  And now that song is stuck in my head. 
I'm going to show you how to make five, yes FIVE, awesome projects for this party, using your Cricut!

Every "Drunk in Love" party needs toasting glasses! I bought these simple black and gold plastic flutes but I personalized them using this gorgeous Cricut iridescent vinyl. No more worrying about losing your glass or wondering which glass is yours! 

I love fresh flowers at all my events, and this one was no exception. Picking up on the gold, burgundy, pink, and black theme, I chose some simple grocery store flowers, but I made them really stand out by personalizing the vase with Cricut glitter vinyl! These also make great keepsakes from the event. 

Your bride simply must have a sash for the evening's fun. I bought a simple white sash and the craft store, but I personalized it by using Cricut Multi-Pink glittered iron-on! You could put the bride's future name, a funny saying, or really anything! 

I also love making items for your bridesmaids and girlfriends to wear for the night! So, I made these fun, cheeky hats with Cricut gold iron-on foil!  The bride's says "Drunk in Love" and the bridemaids' say "Just Drunk."
These also function as great party favors!

Every party needs cupcakes. I love these awesome cupcakes with the bride and groom's picture printed right on top! But, they needed some dressing up, so I added a fun, geometric cupcake wrapper from the Cricut Design Space and cut it out of Cricut black glitter cardstock. I love how the geometric cuts coordinate with the diamond ring of the backdrop. 

And speaking of the backdrop, I also made THIS with my Cricut! Can you believe it? I blew up the diamond ring image to the size I wanted to have, which was about 3x3 feet and then sliced it into the mat sizes so that I could reassemble it onto a cardboard backdrop. Then, I cut around the cardboard with an xacto knife! 

Stick around for next week, when I show you how to make some of these items step-by-step.

{My Parties} Totally Tubular 80's Party

I love the 80s! Who doesn't? Loud colors, crazy clothes, big hair, and awesome music?
Who can ask for more? 
My dream party is an 80s themed party! To me, that theme is the ultimate in fun. 

#80s #memphis #shindigz #eighties #1980s #greygreydesigns #partyideas

In the 80s, when I was a kid, I was obsessed with loud, bright colors and fun patterns. Do you guys remember those shows "My Two Dads" and "Out of This World?" Those shows had the coolest sets. All bright colors and Memphis design inspired. That was my inspiration for this party. 

This fun backdrop is just pure 80's perfection. It's actually two pieces that I taped together on the back. You can grab yours at Shindigz! 

To bring the backdrop to the front of the table, I used this fun black and white checkered corrugated cardboard. It's so easy to use and I simple duct taped it all the way around the table. 
On the front, I hung this neon Happy Birthday sign. 

My very favorite part of this party is the cake!
I covered the bottom layer in white and black fondant and then the second layer is topped completely in Candyfetti! 

The topper is a simple pair of 80's shutter glasses! 

I love the idea of bringing 80's snacks into the party, so instead of doing "grown-up" food, I did food that made you think of being a kid!
I started with Oreo and Milk shots, in these fun neon shot glasses. I displayed them on these awesome lucite stands. 

One of my favorite snacks as a kid was Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies! So, I had to have those! I displayed them in a bed of Chiclets, another 80's favorite. 

Sweets Indeed customized these candy kabobs for me in the colors of my party and I displayed them in a simple hat box that I covered in black and white checkered cardstock. 

I also personalized a few of the party goods, like these Totally Tubular pink sodas!

And these lemonade mix favors. Gag me with a spoon!

For favors, I love these can coolers! Your can goes right in there and the lid actually closes and flips back when you are ready to drink them. 

Hope you thought this party was SO RAD!
